Wins for Shirley, Jones at JN Open

first_imgThird-seeded Stephen Shirley won the men’s Class Two title while Scott Jones lifted the Class Three crown in two early finals at the Jamaica National (JN) Open Tennis Championships at the Liguanea Club yesterday. Shirley stopped long-time rival, the top-seeded Leighton Burton 6-2, 2-6, 6-1. It was Shirley’s first win over his “main rival” in the last five meetings between the Class Two veterans. For his win, Shirley copped a prize from Singer and took home a shiny trophy. “I feel very good to win. Burton is a very tough competitor and the number one seed, and it’s always good to beat the number one,” he told The Sunday Gleaner after his win. His rival, Burton, said: “This is the biggest rivalry in Class Two. We have met five times in the finals and it is his (Stephen Shirley) first win,” he joked. Jones, the number one seed, rallied to beat number two seed, Jermaine Case 6-4, 2-6, 6-2 in another exciting affair. His prizes were also a trophy and Singer gift. Jones entered the match with a slipped disc, but was determined to win, so he took pain killers. He had been out of the sport for eight months. It was Jones’ fourth consecutive Class Three final, but his first win. “I am very happy for this win and looking forward to taking Class Two home in the coming year,” he said.last_img read more
